RAID!

September 28th, 2008 · Comments Off on RAID! · Astrology

It’s confession time. When I occasionally lay siege to the shaky bastion of someone’s cherished concept (eg, Mercury retrograde, the Galactic Center, asteroids, etc), it’s as much for my own amusement as the incidental edification of my imagined readers. Maybe I’m just an astrological provocateur, or maybe I’m just bored. So when I spray some […]

Western Chart Analysis 101

August 26th, 2008 · Comments Off on Western Chart Analysis 101 · Astrology, Instruction

A few months ago, a member of our local (Toronto) Astrology Meetup group asked the “professionals” in the community about their process for analyzing a chart. Although I currently practice Vedic astrology, I chose not to go into the detailed pro forma of that system. Instead, because the vast majority of the Meetup audience practices […]

The Asteroid Known as “Poppycock”

August 7th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Astrology

A month ago I attended a lecture on the asteroids given by a relatively well-known American astrologer who should perhaps remain nameless, since this sort of “specialty” scarcely deserves any more publicity. The asteroids are thought to be the remnants of the proto-planetary disk, a Saturn-like ring of space-junk beyond the orbit of Mars which, […]

When Mercury Goes Retro

July 14th, 2008 · 2 Comments · Astrology, Humour

The scene opens on the downtown office of famous psychotherapist Dr. Chiron. The doctor, in his sixties and sporting the obligatory goatee of his profession, sits behind a desk that bears a statue of Atlas carrying the world on his shoulders. On the walls are pictures of Sigmund Freud, Dane Rudhyar, Carl Jung and Liz […]

Me and Uzi down at the Galactic Center

June 30th, 2008 · Comments Off on Me and Uzi down at the Galactic Center · Astrology

Hermann Goering, Reichsmarshall of Nazi Germany, was reputed to once have said, “Every time I hear someone talking about culture, I want to reach for my Luger.” Well, I’m starting to feel that way about the Galactic Center… It all started during awhile back, when I was reading a post to the Astrology Meetup mailing […]

The Soul’s Code, by James Hillman

March 11th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Soul’s Code, by James Hillman · Astrology, Book Review, Karma

As astrologers, we’re often portrayed as oddballs, out on the fringe of the healing arts professions. Unconsciously or not, this has given some of us a collective insecurity complex, such that we’re left clinging to the hem of society’s skirt, crying for attention like some little kid in need of a hug. Little wonder that, […]

Karma & Reincarnation

January 15th, 2008 · Comments Off on Karma & Reincarnation · Astrology, Karma

Woody Allen said, “I believe in karma and reincarnation, because nothing else explains how I could get so far behind in just one life.” Half the world’s population believes in reincarnation, which obliges us to be reborn again and again, working on our soul’s multiple-life lessons, like some poor kid who can’t get his college […]

The Writer’s Strike & Mercury Retrograde

January 10th, 2008 · Comments Off on The Writer’s Strike & Mercury Retrograde · Astrology

What is it with those writers in Hollywood? I thought everybody in California had an astrologer. Or even if they don’t have one, surely they’ve been reading Rob Breszny’s Real Astrology column long enough to know the rules of the game. Everything stops dead in its tracks for retrograde Mercury. Uh-oh, wait a minute, you […]
